Comvita has been working with nature’s purest ingredients to understand their health-giving properties. Our founders Claude and Alan established Comvita with the shared belief in the power of nature to help people live happy and health lives. After four decades, our mission is unchanged.

It is also home to one of the best botanical collections of trees in New Zealand. One of the highlights of the park is the waterfall track where you can see glow worms after dusk.
